Greetings fellow Bizarros:
A father was arrested on a charge of assaulting a police officer after allegedly punching a policeman in the face, according to police in Montana.
Great Falls police said that they have arrested 19-year-old Timothy Alan Hanson, after being accused of allowing his baby to crawl on the street alone in cold temperatures.
Hanson has been charged with assault on a police officer, endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest. He was booked into jail, and his bail was set at $10,000.
According to the criminal complaint, Detective Jesse Slaughter heard a child crying on the street while walking with his family on Sunday.
The baby was wearing a short-sleeved shirt and pants without socks or shoes. The temperature at the time was around 39 degrees.
Slaughter was trying to find the child's parents when Hanson approached him. Slaughter identified himself as a police officer and Hanson started a physical altercation.
Hanson then punched the police officer in the face and ran into his apartment. When the officer noticed a gun in the apartment, he called for backup.
Hanson resisted arrest, and a Taser had to be used to detain him.

*----- A Portable Shower or a Monkey Cage? -----*
A California man on a cage diving trip off Mexico's Guadalupe Island captured the moment a great white shark got into the cage while a diver was still inside. The video shows the view from outside the water as the great white takes some bait on the end of a line before crashing into the side of the diving cage. The shark manages to crash right through the bars and thrashes around inside the cage while the panicked crew works to open the top and free the predator, which is trapped in the cage with a human diver. The shark, which has blood coming from its mouth, is able to exit the cage through the open top, and a few seconds later the diver also emerges unharmed. "My heart is going," the diver can be heard saying as he returns to safety.
*---- Man Completes Marathon While Juggling ----*
A Canadian man ran the Chicago Marathon while juggling three balls and completed the race in less than three hours without dropping a single ball. Michal Kapral, who also refers to himself as "The Joggler," finished the race in two hours and 55 minutes, as he attempted to top his "joggling" marathon world record of two hours and 50 minutes. "My main goal was break my 2:50 record, but I had a somewhat secret secondary goal of joggling a marathon without a drop in under 3 hours," Kapral wrote in a blog post. While Kapral didn't achieve his primary goal, he managed to cross the finish line without a single drop despite some close calls. He's completed a total of 33 marathons including his world record time at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in 2007 and shouted triumphantly as he added a new accomplishment to his resume in Chicago.
*-------------- READER COMMENTS --------------*
Austin Harrouff had been taking steroids. This is something that the police are not equipped or trained to detect. It explains his aggressive behavior and why, in his "roid rage," the taser had no effect.
[Very believable. However, the officers should have recognized it, since so many cops regularly use steroids. It's practically an epidemic among them.]
I have never found any diamonds with my daughter, but I did find a vibrator in her room once. And that was the last time I looked for anything.
